Aurélie Daher is a Postdoctoral Research Associate at Princeton University, USA (2012-2013). She has received a PhD and a Master’s degree in Political Science from Sciences Po, Paris, in 2011, and a Master’s degree in Public Management from Ecole Supérieure de Commerce de Paris (ESCP Europe) in 2002. She has held a postdoctoral fellow position at the University of Oxford’s Department of Politics and International Relations (2010-2011). Her work focuses on Hezbollah, the Shiites, and Lebanese politics. For her post-doctorate at Princeton, she intends to finish preparing a book on Lebanese politics dedicated to the phase beginning with the assassination of former Prime Minister Rafic Hariri in 2005 to the seizure of power by Hezbollah in 2011 and its management of domestic and foreign policies. She will also be working on a research project studying more broadly the way Hezbollah has dealt since its creation with the Lebanese State and power in general.
